E.L. Doctorow--I Await Your Response
When I wrote an email to tell you that my story in your honor was runner-up for a fiction award and published in a fancy journal, you wrote back, "Thank you for your kind message. You can send a copy of the Review to me c/o English Department, New York University,19 University Place, NY 10003.Best wishes, E.L.Doctorow." It's been years, Edgar, but I can't help myself. Sometimes I still hope that you might drop me a little note when you've read the thing.
